BAH.

What I really wish he'd say is that he's not going to say anything because of separation of powers, but he's been forced into get into this because of nasty Democrats and TRENT LOTT's big mouth.

Will George W. work for
a color-blind America?
Michelle Malkin

I WANT A PRESIDENT who opposes racial discrimination by the government with every fiber of his being.

Yes, it's personal. My future children will be full-blooded Americans of half-Filipino, half-Russian Jewish descent. I want them to grow up, go to school, get jobs, and raise their own children in a country where they will not be penalized for their race or forced to identify their ethnicity in order to achieve their dreams.

Some prominent conservatives – including Prop. 209 heroes Ward Connerly and Tom Wood of California – have endorsed Bush despite his reticence on racial preferences. Others, including Fred Barnes and Paul Gigot, focus on the anemic hope that Bush will appoint rigorous, conservative intellectuals to do the heavy lifting on the U.S. Supreme Court. California State University professor Glynn Custred, another Prop. 209 hero who casts a more skeptical eye toward Bush noted recently, "These tidbits, of course, tantalize conservatives, but they don't really tell us anything, and that's exactly the way George W. intends to keep it."

Unless, of course, grass-roots conservatives demand he unbutton his lips and use them to produce something more than poll-tested pablum.

I hope he comes out and announces that the Justice Department is going to join the white students suing the University of Michigan for *racism* in its affirmative action policy.

According to MSNBC, the president will say admission policy is "unconstitutional".

Actually, they are unconstitutional, which is what he has said all along; and which is exactly what this SC has said in all its rulings.

Oh man. He's letting U of M have it.

'Established an admission process based on RACE... get 20 points based on their race'

'A perfect SAT score is worth 12 POINTS in the Michigan system.'

Should not have made a bit of difference. I thought that since the adults where now in charge, such political moves would stop and operating on principle would begin again.

Extra warning: this is a high-volume ping list.
